Only a handful of Du Paquier artists can be identified from the few signed pieces, even though the hands of many can be distinguished and the names of others are known from church records. This cup is signed Carl Wendelin Anreiter vz: in Wien: feci. and bears the family coat of arms. Anreiter (1702–1747) worked at Du Paquier before leaving to help establish the Doccia factory near Florence in 1737.
